Vaso Vagal

From: M. Thompson


My 13 year old has just been told she has vaso vagal and was advised to inform any doctors before they begin to treat her for other things. She did say she had tunnel vision but the first time she was giving blood and had never fainted before. She fainted flailing her arms and turning white. The second time we saw a quack who removed a wart without the help of anesthia, I suppose the pain was too much for her and she .......passed out. Vaso vagal? Again flailing her arms. This doctor did nothing but tell me she was going to be okay. I would love to find out more about vaso vagal!
